The Economic and Organised Crimes Office (EOCO) has frozen the accounts of the CEO of Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah (NAM 1) Naagyeifmonline.com has gathered.
The latest action comes a day after top Ghanaian government officials including a Deputy Attorney General, Joseph Dinkiok Kpemka, left Ghana to the United Arab Emirates, to speak to issues surrounding the arrest of Menzgold CEO, Nana Appiah Mensah.
Officials of the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI), National Security, Criminal Investigation Department of the Ghana Police Service, the Foreign Affairs Ministry, and other allied security bodies are part of the delegation, which was put together after an emergency National Security meeting yesterday.
They are expected to among other things, trigger a possible diplomatic agreement for the embattled CEO of the gold trading hub to be released to Ghanaian officials, as he is a subject of an existing circuit court warrant.
The decision to send officials to the U.A.E also comes after it was established over the weekend that Mr. Mensah had been detained in the Arab country since December 7, over a gold trading deal gone bad.
